LIFE MASTERY: Create Your Life & The Courage To Live It

Joel Dennis Anastasi, Spiritual Journalist and Author 

Photographer and Trance Channel, Jeff Fasano

Author of Journey of the Awakened Heart



Most of us believe we are here for a PURPOSE. And if you’re anything like me you may have spent a good deal of your life trying to figure out what that purpose is.

I have either been a student or a presenter of Life/Career Planning programs a good deal of my life. I have seen people from widely different backgrounds ranging from poor minorities to wealthy senior corporate executives struggle with the same core questions:

      .  Who am I?
      .  Why am I here?
      .  What should I be doing with my life?

Most of us ask these questions because we want to be happy and fulfilled in our personal lives and careers. WE WANT TO FIGURE OUT WHAT OUR LIFE PATH SHOULD BE AND MUSTER THE COURAGE TO FOLLOW IT.  

It may appear simplistic to think that a mere Life/Career Program can help achieve those challenging goals, but if any program can, I believe this one can. The management and human development programs I have worked with professionally usually have been created by people associated with the field of PSYCHOLOGY. This program was not.


I developed the Life Mastery program from channeled messages from Archangel Michael received through trance channel Jeff Fasano. A trance channel is someone who is able to go into a trance, allowing another energy or spirit to enter their body and use their voice to speak.

Jeff had his first channeling experience on his forty-fourth birthday in 2002 when he channeled the Archangel Michael. Since then he has channeled many spiritual entities from the highest dimensions of the divine realms. Jeff, to me, is one of the most powerful spiritual channels of our time and a true gift to mankind’s spiritual growth and evolution.

Spiritual channeling was not new to me. I had spent most of the first decade of this century becoming quite familiar with channeling while writing my book, The Second Coming, The Archangel Gabriel Proclaims a New Age. The Second Coming records my conversations with the Archangel Gabriel channeled by trance channel, Robert Baker. I am a trained journalist. I found channel Robert Baker completely credible and my experience with Archangel Gabriel powerful.

Jeff and I met through Robert Baker and were now part of a group of five men, a precursor to the Angel News Network, who were preparing for a spiritual journey to Mt. Shasta in 2010. The trip was guided by channeled instructions from the Archangel Michael who asked us to prepare for our journey by reviewing material Michael had given to us a few years earlier.

As I reviewed this material, I soon realized it contained teachings similar to subjects covered in many outstanding management development programs I had worked with in corporate America. However, the lectures and exercises took the student far deeper into their psyche than any programs I had worked with.

Initially, I adapted this material into a twelve-lesson self-study program. Concurrently, Jeff was channeling additional teachings, which he later published as Journey of the Awakened Heart, Discovering Who You Are and Why You Are Here. I have taken material from that book and expanded the Life Mastery program into its current sixteen-lesson format. (I recommend Jeff’s book if you wish to learn more about the channeling experience and for its clear, rich content.)

The result, in my view, is the finest program dealing with Life/Career issues I have seen. Indeed, it is far more than that. To me Michael not only has given us a brilliant guide for living, I believe this program also can be justly described as a great manifesto of human freedom.

Why?  My answer relates to the spiritual context Michael offers for these teachings. This program, be assured, works whether you can accept the spiritual context or not.

Michael teaches that each of us comes to this earthly plane as an individual soul with a mission to learn lessons we ourselves have chosen. (The soul is the individuated personification of God that lives within each human being.) Beginning in early childhood our consciousness usually becomes so shaped and distorted by the influence and conditioning of others (family, culture, authority figures, etc.) that most of us lose sight of who we are and why we are here.

“You have displaced your power and greatness, Michael says. “You have given yourself away and put yourself in the hands of others.  It is time to go inside to find your authentic self, so that you may discover and be who you are. Through this process you will be deactivating the old conditioning of the nervous system and retraining it into the beingness of the self.”

Life Mastery begins to deactivate our old conditioning by helping us identify and release old habits, patterns and attachments that keep us stuck in lack and limitation. It then starts building our confidence to take responsibility for creating our own lives and sets us on the path of true fulfillment by teaching us how to think with our hearts. That is necessary preparation for the ultimate goal, which is to identify our unique gifts, talents and personal qualities and bring them out into the world in ways that brings us joy and fulfillment.

As we work through the lessons, the Life Mastery program gradually moves us to new levels of consciousness so that we may fully be and express who we are. That means we are empowered to courageously state our needs, speak our truth without intention to harm and to set our boundaries—necessary tools for continuing to create healthy lives.

Whether you are seeking a fresh start or wishing to set a new course for your life, this program will launch you on an exciting journey of self-discovery—if you faithfully work through the program as Archangel Michael presents it.

The more effort you put in this program, the more you will take out. Fully engage with the process and you will be rewarded with the expanded consciousness you need to CREATE THE LIFE YOU WANT AND THE COURAGE TO LIVE IT.

Once you begin this new journey, you will discover the journey never ends, for you will be changing and growing for the rest of your life.

Bon voyage!

ARCHANGEL MICHAEL: Victim or Victor?


Beloved masters, there is an orderly sequence to the Cosmic Cycles of Creation which define and emphasize a great variety of GODLY EXPRESSION; therefore, it is important that you learn to flow and adapt to the changes of the time.  It is time to discard the restrictive, limiting beliefs of your present state of Self-awareness as you gain wisdom, seek higher truths, and grow closer to your original state of Divinity. You, the Star Seed, as leaders in the march toward Self-empowerment and as proficient co-creators of the new world of tomorrow, are in the midst of an inner mental and emotional clearing and cleansing process of monumental proportions.

Are you ready to accept the Divine gift we offer, the awesome tools of Creation contained within the FIRST RAY OF DIVINE WILL/POWER? New cycles of existence are initiated through a willingness to change, or if you are resistant, through conflict.  Much depends on your capacity to attract, respond and absorb, and then transmit the more refined Light frequencies, which contain the cosmic higher truths of your new reality. Your Soul and Higher Selves remember the reasons you chose to experience and express painful situations not as a punishment, but for resolution.

Everyone and everything on Earth are now being affected by the radiance of the Seventh Ray, the Violet Transmuting Flame. The beautiful Souls who embody the attributes, qualities and virtues of the forthcoming Root Race are/will be highly evolved and spiritually attuned, and they will be greatly influenced by the Seventh Ray of transformation, freedom, redemption, purification, ritual and organization. As well as, secondarily, by the First Ray of Divine Will/Power, which exemplifies the desire to create anew on the material planes of consciousness.  Many of the old, outmoded teachings are being discarded as humanity evolves in wisdom, and as the frequency patterns/consciousness of the masses are refined and attuned to the more harmonious dimensions. As you have observed, the great religions of the world are deep in the throes of change. 

Only the best of the prevailing religious beliefs will be retained, and the religions that survive will be those establishments willing to expand their spiritual philosophies to incorporate the higher Creator truths-truths, which are being revealed and accepted by the ever-increasing number of advanced Souls now embodied on planet Earth.
Victim consciousness has been the norm for a great percentage of human Beings within the illusional world of the third/fourth-dimensional density.  The solutions to your problems will not be found by seeking answers outside yourself.  Lifting the burdens of distorted, conceptual third-dimensional illusion is a cooperative effort between your subconscious/ego desire body, your conscious mind-set, and your Soul Self. A person with a victim-consciousness overlay cannot be rescued; he/she must take personal responsibility to actively seek to reclaim the personal power he/she has given away to others. 

In the past, the hunger and desires of the physical vessel have overridden the Soul's subtle demands for spiritual sustenance. 

Worry, sadness and despair consist of the vibrational frequencies of limitation and inertia.   A very effective barrier has been created by the base physical nature around the wisdom of the Soul. It is vitally important that you strengthen your Self-determination and your desire for spiritual fulfillment if you are to rise above the prison of negative thought forms you have created over the many past ages.  

It is time, once and for all, to free yourselves from the martyrhood and victim-consciousness that so many of you have associated with duty, loving others and righteous behavior.

Those of you who have awakened to the inspiration, guidance and wisdom of your Soul Self and your OverLighting Higher Self are now aware that you can accomplish anything you can envision. You are validating for yourself that if you follow the universal laws of manifestation, you will quickly and easily manifest those things that you most desire, which must always be for the greatest good of all.  Multitudes of restless Souls are feeling from deep within awareness that it is time to reclaim their heavenly heritage, even if they don't understand the full meaning of the concept. A critical component of Self-mastery is that each and every person must go through the process of releasing, transmuting or upgrading all of the old restricting thought forms and structures that he/she has accepted as his/her reality.
We have touched on this subject before; however, vast numbers of blessed Souls are fearful of the future and the chaos that seems to be increasing at a tremendous pace. As a result, the masses are beginning to feel the great cosmic impulses that are permeating the Earth and all humanity, and they are gradually turning inward for answers and assurance. Therefore, it is appropriate that we give you an explanation once more regarding the diverse beliefs in predestination and free will.  Many believe one or the other concept to be true, but we have explained that both are true. But you wonder, "How can this be?"  

Dear ones, originally, you burst forth in perfection from the heart core of the Supreme Creator, and from the beginning you were predestined and programmed to eventually return to the higher, more glorious realms of existence.  How long it takes you to complete your journey into the realms of separation and density, and the return into unity consciousness is totally up to you.  Through the use of the gift of free will, only you can decide whether you will take the high, narrow accelerated path of return; the ebb and flow of the middle path; or the rocky, low road that dips, winds and turns, but eventually leads to the same destination.

You, the Star Seed, now understand that it is of great value to spend some time in meditation and contemplation, reviewing the structures you have created in your third/fourth-dimensional reality (which includes mental, emotional, physical and even some spiritual restrictions). As you do so, you will expediently determine that it is time to release many of the ties that bind you, so that you may move quickly into the expanded, empowering world of tomorrow.  Many brave souls have been victorious in overcoming their lower nature, and are now firmly reconnected with their personal Pillar of Light as they steadily tread the Path of Ascension.  It is a grand opportunity to reclaim your Trinity of Consciousness (your refined mental, emotional and spiritual natures). It is our greatest desire that you will choose the high road, for you are being presented with a golden opportunity that has never before been offered to humanity-an opportunity which will not be offered again for a very long time. 

One of the most important exercises you can perform in order to become a sovereign Being once more is the BREAKING AGREEMENTS meditation that we gave our messenger many years ago.  We are reminding you of this important process once again; so that you may forever free yourselves of the "karmic probable futures" you have created with others down through the many past ages.

Breaking agreements when you are in a Self-conscious or conscious-of-Self, Alpha State helps you to eliminate self-defeating restrictive suggestions more quickly and thoroughly. We are asking you not to lay blame, but as a Self-master becoming to rise above the conflict and the hurt, and objectively endeavor to understand the difficult lessons that you have experienced with others. Your karmic partners and lessons were always chosen by you and the other person before you incarnated into this lifetime. It is extremely important that you understand this fact.

Over many past ages, you have sent out energy time lines that have created probable futures, promising such things as: "I will love you forever."  "I will hate you forever."  "I will take care of you forever," and so on.   In order to become a sovereign Being once more, you must take back your own energy and give back other people their energy, so that you may continue on your path as masters of your own destiny.  In this way, you will no longer have your lessons mirrored back to you by others.  Through conscious awareness, you will understand what each person you interact with and each occurrence has to teach you so that you may gain the wisdom from the action and not have to experience it in the old, often painful, cause and effect manner.
If you haven't already done so, we suggest you go through this exercise with each and every person with whom you have ever had conflict or stressful learning situations. It is time to fully open your Sacred Heart center, both the front and back portals, so that the Creator Light can flow into you and through you. This will allow your THREE-FOLD FLAME within your Solar Power Center to blaze forth as it was designed to do.  This will also allow the refined Creator Light, Adamantine Particles, to flow into your Sacred Heart center and throughout your physical vessel, and the remainder to radiate forth out into the world of form.  This is your ultimate goal.


Go into your work pyramid and be seated at the head of the table.  Invite your Higher Self and your angelic guides to stand behind you.  There is a Violet Flame burning beneath the table and the double-terminated crystal hanging over the table is sweeping waves of Light throughout the room.

Envision the person you wish to break agreements with seated in the chair at the opposite end of the crystal table from you. Ask his/her Higher Self to stand behind him/her. See your Higher Self connecting with the Higher Self of the person with whom you wish to resolve any discordant energy. If you have had a very difficult past with that person, you may wish to have a dialog with them. 

You will be communicating with their Higher Self, and therefore there will be an understanding of what you wish to convey, if you speak lovingly and objectively.  Do not lay blame for what has happened in the past; just state your heartfelt feelings and what you wish the other person to understand.  An example would be:

"All I have ever wanted was for us to have a mutual understanding of each other's needs.  I now know that I must honor myself and feel worthy in order to have a satisfying relationship with anyone.  I know you did the best you could, for you have your own burdens to release and resolve.  I wish you to know I have no ill feelings and that you have helped me to better understand what I must do to become Self-empowered and a more worthy / loving person."

Take several deep breaths and lovingly focus on their heart/soul centers as you state:  

"I forgive you for any past, present or future energies/thoughts/deeds, in this or any other reality, that you have projected to me which have not resonated with unconditional love.   

I ask your forgiveness for any past present or future energies/thoughts/deeds, in this or any other reality, that I have projected to you, which have not resonated with unconditional love.  I hereby break any agreements, past present or future, in this or any other reality, that do not serve my greatest good." 

Envision any cords that are attached from the other person's solar plexus to your solar plexus.  See my blazing sword slicing through those energy cords, and watch as your energy cords gradually return to your solar plexus center, and the other person's energy cords return to them.
In addition to the above exercise, it is important that you go into your personal pyramid and lie on your crystal table.  Ask your Higher Self to scan your body to determine if there are any etheric tears in your auric field, front or back.  The most common etheric tears are in the three lower chakra area which leave you susceptible to security/scarcity issues, ego desire body/sexual issues/compulsive behavior, and so on.  The other most prevalent area is across the heart from one shoulder down to the lower rib cage, either in front or in back.  You have placed etheric shields around your heart for protection or etheric tears have been created when you have been betrayed by loved ones, violently killed, or when you suffered great trauma.  Some of the symptoms are feeling unloved, a sense of unworthiness, guilt, self-hatred or pain, anguish or tightness in the heart area from grief or a sense of loss.
If you determine that there are any etheric tears in your auric field, all you have to do is say, "I ask that now and for all time any and all etheric tears be healed," and it will be done.  I will seal them with my blazing Sword of Light, and your auric field will once again be seamless and whole.
It is time to heal and rise above that which you chose as your tests and challenges for this lifetime, dear hearts.  Reach upward and inward for your majestic Divine Self.  We can and will assist you; however, it must be a partnership endeavor. There are miracles in store for you, beloveds, and the greatest of these is that your perfection awaits you. May the radiance of the Creator shine down upon you. You are loved beyond measure. I AM Archangel Michael.

Journey of the Awakened Heart: Receiving Love

Jeff Fasano is a Trance Channel, Photographer and Author 

Receiving Love

Begin to walk through your life with joy.

You have walked through the shadow and through the doorway into the unknown. The door has closed and is now locked behind you. For a period of time, your deepest fears of safety and security surfaced. “Will I be safe in the unknown?” “Will I be safe with myself and trust myself in the unknown?” As you now walk gingerly into the unknown, you’re not sure what is going to happen and this will bring up the aspect of control. You are now out of control and living in your natural state of being for out of control is a natural state of being. Now that you are being guided to live with “what is” and in the moment, where are you?

Where you are might not be anywhere. You are where you are and quite possibly have no explanation for it. You have found yourself in situations with wonderful and glorious souls where you could explain where you were and who you were. But now you find this is no longer a viable option. It is more important to remain in the process of moving towards the place where you connect with your soul’s divine plan. For after you reach this place, you will be presented with a new choice of whether or not to continue on the path to entirely be who you know you are.

There will no longer be a thought process involved if you stay on the path. You will simply be who you are. And, in being you, you will be the messenger for the messages that come to you. You will utilize your talents and gifts to express the messages and who you are. Where you are now is in a process of releasing whatever you still need to release to continue on the pathway towards this intersection.

We come to you now to bring you to a place to receive love from yourself. Continue writing down five things you love and adore about yourself because this will allow you to begin to receive. But now, after you make your list, move within and feel your feelings. Also write down these feelings. How does any aspect you listed make you feel?

While doing this exercise, you might find that you are still looking at “what isn’t there yet.” Or you might find that you are looking at “what is there” and experiencing a deep sense of fulfillment and joy. Fulfillment of being comes when you can say, “I know who I am; I know my talents and gifts.” When you arrive at this place, proceed to look into the mirror to receive yourself and to give love to you.

Continue to give yourself something every day. Do something extraordinarily wonderful for yourself. 

Plan a point in every day when you will do this. Make a date. For example, decide, “I will give myself a wonderful gift at seven o’clock tonight.” See if you keep your dates. Also notice what comes up for you when you are just about to give to yourself? What happens? Do you celebrate yourself or do you do everything in your power to avoid receiving from yourself? Can you give to yourself every day?

The only way you can receive love from another is by giving it to yourself first. Can you do this? Have you been doing it? It doesn’t have to be the same time each day.

Your heart is beginning to open at a depth that you have never known before. Moving towards real intimacy with yourself, you are beginning to share who you are openly. The next step is to receive love from others; yet the first step is giving love to you.

Can you love yourself enough to know what that feels like, so you can then give to another? The only way you can give without attachment, to give without having to get something, is by giving to yourself first and receiving that love. You must know how that feels. So after you give to yourself, write down your feelings. How does it feel to give to you? Are you simply doing it because we are asking you to, and saying, “Since this is part of the process, it will get me somewhere—Michael said it would”? If this is the case, in essence what you are doing is giving to yourself with an attachment. “If I give of my talents and gifts, then I will be gratified and validated. Others will love me. They will see that I am good enough, even perfect, and then deify me if I do this right.”

Give to yourself, and give consciously. Be conscious of how it makes you feel and notice if you are giving to yourself in order to get or to get rid of something. You may find that you are wondering, “If I do this exercise, what will it get me?” or “What will doing this exercise enable me to get rid of, which I can’t accept with compassion?”

You are at a most important time, for in order to move forward you must know how to give love to you. This is where you are and it is important. You have discovered and remembered many talents and gifts and you are now at the place to begin to embody them and love those parts of you that you express using your talents and gifts. Now you are ready to open to the depth of your heart to receive love.

It is also time to move through your life with joy. If you are one of those who have chosen the path of the light worker, it is time to look at your meaning, value, and purpose because this is shifting and changing. There is a new purpose, which is to give in order to create a new world of harmony, community, and equality. What is the new purpose for your talents and gifts? After you write down the five aspects of your talents and gifts that you adore, also ask yourself, “What is their purpose?”

As you move forward, there is yet another decision to make. Your first decision was to stand at the gateway to the new. Once the gate opened, your second decision was to walk through it and onto the pathway into the unknown.

Soon you will have the opportunity to embody your soul’s divine plan. This is your third choice. You will reach an intersection where you may connect fully with your soul family. As you have raised the level of resonance and vibration within you to get to this point, you connected with those who were close to the level of energy and frequency as you. Now you will have the choice to gather with those who resonate and vibrate at the same level, those who share the same mission. If you decide to embody your soul’s plan, everyone in this soul family will have individuated, they will know who you are, and they will recognize their uniqueness as well as each other’s uniqueness.

You are just beginning to move to the core aspect of your heart to begin to uncover the frequency that lies there. The way in which to do this is through this personal process you are now engaged in. This is a process of clearing, cleansing, and releasing what no longer serves your highest good and impedes your movement forward towards the realization of your soul’s divine plan. There will come one choice to make: either to connect with the soul’s divine plan and move on that pathway or not.


You are, in fact, here to be a messenger, to shift the energies around you. You are here to change the world by raising the level of resonance and vibration within you, and by supporting others to do the same. You are at a most crucial point because your world is rapidly shifting. Do you resonate with the change or with what is old? Do you resonate with the change that you intend to make within you and your commitment to that?

The only way you can change what is outside of you is to commit to changing you. Commit to looking at all the aspects of yourself that you would like to change.

Who are you? Why are you here? Do you know who you are? Do you love you? Can you love you? 

Can you love yourself enough to commit to change while you are on the path? Can you commit to opening your heart wider than you ever have before to reveal who you are and give your talents and gifts to the world? Can you open your heart even wider to receive the love that comes when you give without attachment?

Receiving love is your purpose. Being who you are is all that is necessary for you to receive love. Give the energy of harmony, community, and equality and you will share love in a balanced exchange of giving and receiving wherever you go from now on.
